 Washington, DC — Today, Congressman Troy E. Nehls (R-TX-22) – along with thirteen Republican lawmakers – sent a letter to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal expressing concerns about recent decisions made by the social media platform to suspend the account of Dr. Robert Malone, a noted vaccine researcher involved in the development of mRNA vaccines. Dr. Malone has questioned the U.S. Government and pharmaceutical industry’s conduct during their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and development of vaccines. 


The lawmakers asked the Twitter CEO to answer the following questions:


1) What was the specific post violating Twitter’s COVID-19 misleading information policy that led to the suspension of Dr. Robert Malone’s Twitter account (@RWMaloneMD)?

2) Have Twitter’s COVID-19 misleading information policy or its synthetic and manipulated media policy changed since your becoming CEO? If so, would Dr. Malone’s account have been suspended under the prior policies for the same post?

3) One of Twitter’s stated principles is “Making it straightforward. Simple is good, but straightforward is better. Our product, our behavior, and our work habits should all be transparent and to the point.”  Do you believe that suspending accounts without explanation complies with your company's principle of being “straightforward” and “transparent?”


The lawmakers also stated their intent to rein in Big Tech power and hold them accountable for arbitrary censorship practices if they obtain a majority in the House of Representatives in 2023.


“For far too long, Big Tech companies, such as Twitter, have been able to censor important voices without recourse available to those affected,” the lawmakers wrote. “While the 117th Congress has failed to address the need to update and modify Federal law and regulations impacting the internet and social media, it is highly probable that under new leadership in 2023, Congress will spearhead an effort to hold Big Tech accountable for its arbitrary censorship practices.”


Co-signers include Reps. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), Bill Posey (R-FL), Claudia Tenney (R-NY), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Dan Bishop (R-NC), Diana Harshbarger (R-TN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Pat Fallon (R-TX), Byron Donalds (R-FL), Jody Hice (R-GA), Greg Steube (R-FL), Bob Good (R-VA), and Madison Cawthorn (R-FL).

**On January 3, 2022, Congressman Nehls entered the transcript of the Joe Rogan Experience #1757 – Interview with Dr. Robert Malone, MD into the Congressional Record in response to Twitter and YouTube’s move to remove the interview from their platforms. “Today, I entered the transcript of the Joe Rogan Experience #1757 into the Congressional Record to preserve the podcast forever,” said Congressman Nehls. “Big Tech may be able to censor information on their own platforms, but they cannot censor the Congressional Record.”
